During our recent trip to San Francisco, Ms. J picked up a jar of Cream-Nut brand peanut butter. When we travel we like to have some food available for Mr. C for a quick snack or sandwich, like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
I had never seen this brand of peanut butter before, and had never had one that had such a strong peanut taste. There’s only two ingredients; peanuts and sea salt. We liked it so much that we brought the jar home with us in our luggage.
The jar was just about full when we brought it home as we only made a sandwich or two with it while we were there. We go through about a jar of peanut butter a week here at home, so this should have been emptied long ago. However we’ve been conserving it, since we can’t find a local source. I even contacted the Cream-Nut company to ask if there were any markets in our area that carried it, and unfortunately no.
Before Mr. C, we might have gone through a jar of peanut butter every four months or so. But now, with a PB&J at least two or three times a week, we are becoming connoisseurs of the PB&J. I have been known to grab a cracker only as a way to get some of this peanut butter.
Both Ms. J and I love this stuff, but neither of us want to be the one to empty out the jar. We’re saving it to let the other person finish it off.
After more than a month of crackers and sandwiches, there’s not much left.
Definitely not enough for a sandwich in there.
How much is left anyway?
That’s really not much at all.
That’s a quarter of a teaspoon, maybe.
It really wouldn’t make any sense for me to put that back into the jar.
